Sony recently revamped their bootloader unlocking service and if you own Sony Xperia Z3 and want to root it along with unlocking bootloader then today we are sharing a video tutorial on how to root your Xperia Z3 bootloader, install custom recovery and root it. Keep in mind unlocking bootloader voids the warranty of your device and loss of your DRM keys if not backed up.

Xperia Z3 comes with android 4.4.4 KitKat out of the box with bootloader status allowable for unlocking. Keep in mind for Xperia Z3v ( on Verizon for US users ) you can’t unlock the bootloader as it is not allowed.

Below mentioned are some important links you will be needing for unlocking the Xperia Z3 Bootloader.

Sony’s Bootloader unlocking service.

WARNING : Sony has issued a warning for Xperia Z3 users, that unlocking bootloader affects camera algorithm on their device. Proceed ahead if you wish to.

Certain pre-loaded content on your device may also be inaccessible due to the removal of DRM security keys. For high-end devices running recent software versions, for instance Xperia Z3, the removal of DRM security keys may affect advanced camera functionality. For example, noise reduction algorithms might be removed, and performance when taking photos in low-light conditions might be affected. The secure user data partition may also become inaccessible, and you will not be able to get any more official software upgrades if you unlock the boot loader.
